Kent County Levy Court has received the Pro Patria Award, for the second time in a row, from the United States Department of Defense.
The Pro Patria Award is the highest state-level award given to a civilian employer by DOD. KCLC received this award from the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Program (ESGR).
The ESGR Award is presented annually to one small, one large, and one public sector employer in its state or territory, which has demonstrated continued support for guard and reserve employees.
The ESGR is an agency within the office of the assistant secretary of defense for reserve affairs. This year's 2013 ESGR Award honors Kent County Levy Court as a Freedom Award semi-finalist.
